El fresco evening under the oak trees on 27th March.

We heard from friends that they had a good meal there, so looked on Tripadvisor and saw plenty of negative reviews, so we almost did not go, but it was a balmy Cape evening and so we booked for 7pm.

On a months vineyard and restaurant visit to the Cape I did not eat at gourmet restaurants twice a day, well not often! And while in Constantia I ate at Cassis 3 times, in brief it is a friendly place set in a small row of eateries on the road leading to Groot Constania Vineyard . The menu has Italian... More

Last time I was here the menu was very basic but perhaps they have a new chef as it's quite different and more extensive. Our waitron Primrose was attentive and one of the duty managers answered all our questions on the food. I asked if there was onion in the burger and was told that there was as it help... More

Spent two weeks in Cape Town with my wife. Friends introduced us to Pastis for lunch. Service was friendly and excellent, food pretty good. We ate there three times over our stay, always ate at one of the outdoor tables. No one ever rushed us, it was very relaxing. I can highly recommend Pastis.

The place is already a little shabby but still expectations are that you will have a good meal. We waited for far too long for our food - a steack and a carpaccio so not the end of the world difficult - and after clapping a bottle of wine started getting edgy! Some manager popped out of a cupboard -... More

Lunch, Saturday 21 February 2015 We go to this establishment on a very regular basis, but sadly, since the new chef has taken over, things are a little "off colour". Even the interior walls have been repainted an insipid clinical ecru/cream and the famous bar chimney breast a ghastly butternut colour! Most importantly, as a person who is allergic to... More

Having beento this restaurant quite regularly, decided to go there with a friend, again as the food is good and affordable. Ordered our main courses and when they arrived, we were really disapointed. Usually the fries were small and golden and served in a cornet. This time they were big and so light in colour and arrived on a white... More

I chose Pastis for a late Saturday breakfast/brunch with a friend. The waitress got one order wrong and brought Salmon instead of bacon eggs Benedict. When the correct order arrived the eggs were underdone, very runny and cold inside. By this time i had already eaten my meal and she was too embarrassed to send it back again. This could... More

Worst experience of my life!! Worst service ever. At a stage we thought it was a comedy movie being filmed with hidden cams!! When some of the food came out some of it was actually OK!! People were complaining all over the place. After the waiter tried to impress with repeating our order for 4 mains 3 times, he forgot... More
